    Just to give you a general rule to work with, it will typically take 650 - 700 rwhp to take a 3500 lb car down the quarter in 9.99. A 9.00 would require substantially more (200 rwhp).

    That being said, there are a TON of factors involved including -- transmission, gearing, traction, track conditions, etc. Do you have any more info about the car, setup, your goals -- we might be able to give you a little more specific advice.

    Thumbs up

    My car is an A4 procharged with 3.73 gears, 2300 stall, stock suspension, stock block, Kooks headers/hooker cat-backs and stock heads with small cam making 600rwhp.

    All of the 1/8 to 1/4 mile conversion charts I've looked at says in order to run 9.98 in the 1/4 the car needs to run 6.40's in the 1/8.

    ive seen as little as five hundred some horse cars run 10's, and as much as six hundred some horse cars run elevens. . . .i think hp in the 600's can break the 9's w/ all the other "stuff" bein' right. i run 11's and i'm nowhere near 600's.
    2000 red ss: >2" drop, koni adjustables 'n 275 s-compounds all way around, giant brakes, dynatech LT's, borla catback (no plate), t56, tubular everything, HARD TOP, caged, "stock" heads 'n a mean cam. -2* front camber.
